The Parker family migrated from Virginia to Georgia in the late 1700s. The Parkers were prominent members of communities in northern Georgia for several generations and included farmers, mill owners, educators, doctors, preachers, and lawyers. Letters written by various members of this family in the 1800s gave me invaluable insight into their lives.
A Georgia Historical Marker has been erected where the town of Parkertown once stood. It was described in one document as "an educational and industrial center of Northeast Georgia."
